“Namaste is more than just a term used to end a yoga session .”

Lini

More than just a bow

 With everything going on in the world today. We here at Lini Skinfood thought this topic would be perfect to blog about. 

Yogi’s, hear this term after every yoga sesh. . . What would you do if your yoga instructor didn’t say it? Would you sit around and wait for them to say it? Or would you leave after a minute or two? 

Well, this does happen and the yoga instructor is shocked that everyone is waiting to hear ‘namaste.’ 

After hearing this story (multiple times) we here at Lini Skinfood believe this term is important to know in a holistic lifestyle. 

The meaning of namaste

This term is a Sanskirt word bringing the essence of oneness & an understanding of the true nature of reality. A Hindu greeting showing a salutation of respect and reverence. This greeting is used throughout South East Asian. While also using the gesture, ” Añjali Mudrā”. You slightly bow down with pressed together in front of you. In Hindusim, namaste means, ” I bow to the divine in you “. The  Indian greeting is very similar, “I bow to you”. 

Namah/Namsa - to bow  

*

Te - You.
